X8+ powerful octocopter platform for aerial video
15 minutes of flight time and over 800g payload capacity
Range: 300m (984 ft) from launch point
GPS: 3DR u-blox GPS with compass
Flight modes: Manual (standard), Hover (loiter), Mission (auto)
The 3D Robotics X8+ Octocopter (915MHz) is equal to any task. With a flight time of 15 minutes and a payload capacity of over 800 grams, the X8+ is the perfect platform for aerial video. The X8+ is powered by a rechargeable lithium polymer (LiPo) battery.

The X8 includes three flight modes:
Manual flight (STD-altitude hold)
Start your flight in standard to select altitude hold mode, and fly manually using the controller.

Hover mode (LTR-loiter)
Select loiter to hover in place automatically. Use the controller to adjust the X8’s position then release the sticks to hold that position. Loiter is a great way for beginners to learn how to fly. If you’re new to flying, start your first flight in loiter instead of standard.

Mission flight (Auto)
Select auto mode to fly an autonomous mission. The X8+ automatically flies the series of waypoints saved to the autopilot. See the Missions section on page 28 for instructions on planning and flying missions.

The X8+ is programmed with a set of failsafe behaviors to prevent a crash in the event of a loss of one of the data or communication channels required for flight. Although certain failsafes have assigned LED indicators and tones, it is unlikely that you will be able to see these at a distance. Monitor the ground station for failsafe indications. If a failsafe is triggered, the assigned behavior activates. To override the failsafe behavior, use the controller to switch to standard mode and regain manual control.
